Ajustes Estructurales

Another Mille Plateaux record (and one of the weirdest ones), this was my first contact with the L.A. based Ultra-Red, also mentioned here. I consider them unique, both for their urban soundscapes (mostly processed location recordings) and for their subtly aggressive polemics; honestly, I feel I miss a lot in this one since I don't get all the (mostly distorted) words. Sounds great though; highly experimental collages of found sounds, disembodied voices and DSP effects.

Anyway, there's more than enough sound and text to satisfy you on their various sites, so go there and check them out. As music lovers, you might start with 'Writing Ambient Music', for example.
